During her long career in the industry Anabelle Araujo has developed her skills and expertise in many areas for the promotion of comic artists.
Director of festivals, bookseller, collaborator at a comic art gallery and agent of artists, she currently works for Delcourt as coordinator of the events department, managing with her team the biggest comics conventions, including the International Comics Festival in Angouleme.
The Delcourt Group is the leading independent group of French-language comics publishing.
Thanks to, editor Thierry Mornet, Delcourt is the happy publisher of several successful American series: Walking Dead by Robert Kirkman and the talented Charlie Adlard, Criminal by Ed Brubaker & Sean Phillips and Hellboy by Mike Mignola, to name but a few.
At Comics Salopia Anabelle will be carrying out portfolio reviews for aspiring artists with an interest in working within the huge French Comic Book industry, an industry many times the size of ours in the UK.
We are honoured to be welcoming her as our special guest to the festival this year.
